Changin’ Times II

There was a time generations ago

when the frail held a special place

at the family table

 

            we wanted to love

 

There was a time generations ago

when we sat at Grandma Mary’s feet

and heard her stories

 

            we wanted to know

 

Now is a time of

bleach     bland food    walkers

blaring Fox News

 

            stored like teacups in a cupboard

A Choice

Along the way my life became

two entities

 

One touched me, hugged me close to him

the quiet, moody one

He soothed my ragged brow

felt torment in my day

said he could take it away

 

The louder, boisterous one

smiled and nodded as he heard my grief

Said he could bring me

one more day, one more chance

to find the way

 

I saw no hope with the louder one

one more day to struggle

one more chance to fail

I laid my head on the quiet shoulder

and let him take my hand

 

In remembrance of Robin Williams – We will miss him

Poem from “All of Me” by Hal C Clark

Hyphen

Carl Shakey married Becky Tree

became my parents

so I was

Chuck Shakey-Tree

 

a few months ago I married

the beautiful daughter of

George Dull and Brenda Axe

my new bride, Charly

told me today of our pending child

 

I ponder the burdensome name for a child

to learn to spell

Carl or Carla
